Blueberry, Cinnamon & Apple Breakfast Muffins

GLUTEN FREE . DAIRY FREE . REFINED SUGAR FREE .

MAKES AROUND 24

The beauty of these muffins is that they are not only a satisfying, sustaining breakfast but they are the perfect addition to a healthy school lunchbox, a great post-gym snack or just a simple guilt-free indulgence on a rainy day!

I realise that there are several specialised Gluten free flours in the recipe but I usually order mine via Amazon and choose a good brand such as Bob’s Red Mill.  Easily done, cheaper if you buy them together as a bundle and a versatile baking cupboard addition.
